Averna Amaro Liqueur
Since 1868, the Amaro Averna represents true Sicilian art, with a history that has its roots in the wonderful land of Caltanissetta. The secret recipe has been handed down from generation to generation and has become an after-meal Italian classic.
The heart of Averna’s production, the infusion of herbs, still takes place in Caltanissetta. Averna is made according to the traditional recipe, which has remained unchanged since 1868 and which involves a slow infusion process, undoubtedly one of the most unique and authentic today.
First prepared by 13th century Italian monks as herbal medicines and elixirs, Liqueurs are distilled spirits that have been combined with flavoring agents. A range of herbs, spices, nuts, fruits and flowers can be used, and a sweetener such as sugar or corn syrup is often added. While typically rather sweet, some examples are herbaceous or tart and pair exceptionally well with desserts or act as a delightful addition to cocktails.
